Ukraine parliament just voted Yanukovich out 299 votes, 34 not voting. Parliament members look very happy, watching live. vote said yanuk not there doing his job.
In before the Michael Savage/George Soros Nut jobs.
It looks like the revolt may turn into a revolution.
We’ll see what Putin does.
And what obama doesn’t.
Tyrants everywhere, take note, you only have as much power as the people allow.
What are the odds that he ends up in Moscow? Repeat of 1956 Hungary?
BBC - Ukraine MPs vote to oust president: Ukrainian MPs vote to oust President Yanukovych and hold early presidential elections on 25 May.
OUTSTANDING! Screw the pro-Putin oligarchs who terrorized and continued to impoverish the Ukraine.
It’s also being reported (although kinda lost in the shuffle) that the chief rabbi of Kiev is telling Jews to flee the country. There is apparently a LOT of anti-Semitism going on and it could get very dangerous for Ukrainian Jews.
for none thing “Presidents” should not live in “Palaces”
This is not a coincidence. Yanukovych is reportedly in Kharkiv, a pro-Yanukovych stronghold (or its supposed to be), and hes at a conference of the Ukrainian Front, a collection of politicians, and pro-government street thugs, who are willing to die for the President. But as a recent article by John Schindler, on The XX Committee, points out, the Ukranian Front appears to be deeply influenced and controlled by the Russian government. In fact, the Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Russian State Duma, Alexei Pushkov, is present in Kharkiv right now. Heres what the report has to say about the nature of the Ukrainian Front:
It seems Moscow is not pleased with its protege Yanukovych and his inability to crush the opposition, so it is forming a new grouping to assist the hardliners. Given that the appearance of the Ukrainian Front has been heralded with a birth announcement in the Kremlins official newspaper, Russian approval and support can be assumed.
Moreover, the embrace of Stalinist-era rhetoric by the Ukrainian Front indicates a great deal, and will serve as a needless irritant towards Ukrainians who detest Stalin and his murderous legacy. In a similar vein, Communist activists have unveiled a bust of Stalin in Western Ukraine, a provocation that is about as offensive to most locals there as a statue of Hitler would be in the rest of Europe. Of course, hailing Stalins victories in the 1940′s is of a piece with the current Kremlin vilification campaign against all Ukrainians who do not want their country to be subjugated by Russia, a nasty agitprop line that regrettably has Western supporters, not all of them unwitting dupes.
Now that the Ukrainian Front has entered the picture, with Moscows imprimatur, expect the situation in Ukraine to only get worse. It would be difficult to overstate the danger Ukraine and Europe are in at the moment thanks to intimidation, meddling and provocation by Vladimir Putins Kremlin. European governments would be well advised to not permit naked Russian interference of a violent and coercive sort in Ukrainian politics: this cannot end well.
And now we have rallies in Sevastopol, where the Russian Black Fleet is anchored, in favor of reuniting with Russia (jump to update 1410).
What’s Ukrainian for “Ceausescu”?
This is a model of events that the U.S. Should heed to rid the nation of Bo and his pack of criminals.
